A spam filter is a software application that hinders undesirable email messages from reaching a particular inbox. A huge percentage of the email communication around the globe involves spam email messages: offers for pills or money, false banking notifications, etc. This is why, it’s quite important to enable email filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being tricked somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to provide better security – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP mail server. Web hosts frequently use the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to make spam filtering better and easier without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting servers employ one of the best anti-spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is included with each cloud web hosting package, so in case you host your domain names with our company, you can select one of the five levels of safety that the filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can do this with only 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header section and the body of every email message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds based on the level that you have selected. Every mailbox can have a different setting and you can choose whether the messages that the spam filter flags as spam should be erased or delivered to a separate email address where you can check them later, so as to prevent deleting a genuine email message. Switching to a different level or disabling the spam protection is also pretty easy.
